Has anyone gotten a tubal reversal?

I had mine tied around biggest mistake I ever made cuz I had both my kids under 20 and then wanted more kids later and couldn’t I talked to my OBGYN cuz he’s the one who did the tubes tied and told him I wanted to see about fixing them he said he needed to look before anything to see if they could be and while he was in there he tried putting them back together one he said was too short and the other one he put back together my new OBGYN that I see found a fibroid in my uterus and removed it but he said he didn’t think I would ever get pregnant again the first doctor gave me a 65% chance but nothing did it’s always made me sad that I didn’t have more

I got mine tied when I was 22 after my third. I’m 28 now and starting the process of getting the reversal. I’m from Kentucky and there is a doctor in Louisville who cost 6200, depending on weight and height it goes up. If you don’t get pregnant within a year they help with fertility. Good luck!

I had my tubal reversal done in Louisville Ky by Dr. Levin. Cost about $7000 cash, no insurance will cover it. I was pregnant 5 weeks after my procedure and my son is almost 4 now.

Go ivf… I waisted 10 grand on reversal and my tube closed back up.

I had a tubal reversal in 2013 it was a success :heart: it is completely out of pocket unfortunately, but my best advice is to call your local reproductive/infertility doc and have a consultation. They will be honest about options. I saw two different doctors. One wanted to do IVF but would do the surgery with no guarantees, the other said he knew he could do it and his success rate was higher than average. It was about $3000 more than the other doc, but his confidence and “lack of judgment” so to speak just gave me a feeling, and I definitely made the right decision! Dr. Collins @ UPMC.

I reversal is usually not covered by insurance. Recuperating time 6-8 weeks. Unable to be done if there is a large amount of scar tissue. Afterwards there is a high risk of an ectopic pregnancy. I think the risks of surgery may be too high. Cost 30 to 50 thousand

Had it done and my baby is now 30 yrs old. Was paid by insurance then but don’t know about now

I had my tubes tied when I was 23. When I was 30 my husband and I decided we wanted more children. Had the reversal done. It was out of pocket and cost $6500. It took about 6 months to get pregnant but I had a successful pregnancy. Actual had 2 very healthy pregnancies/children after the reversal.

We had ours reversed and got pregnant in 11 months:) insurance won’t pay for it. Our reversal was 6200 with dr levin. He is seriously amazing.

You can always adopt, instead of a reversal. I have been thinking about that a lot here lately. I want another one but I don’t necessarily want to go thru the whole pregnancy thing again(I love being pregnant, I’ve done it 3 times though) and there are so many kids that are in the system. This is not a judgement btw just a suggestion as that’s what I have been thinking about :blush:Good luck whatever decision you make!

I had a tubal reversal in 1990 it was free I was39 at the time and had two beautiful children

It can be done just research for a well known doctor with success stories with 8 years plus between tubes tied and reversal. Many drs advertise success but they are 5 yrs or less between procedures.

I had my done in 2006 after 4 kids and i was only 24 and so in 2014 i got my reverse and had 3 more babies it cost $9000 in Newcastle nsw Australia

Ivf might be a safer option

My friend had to go through IVF for another baby following her tubal. She is pregnant now though :grin:
